Hometown Heroes

Friday morning Kootenai County Fire and Rescue honored two citizens and a local business for their lifesaving efforts on August 11. Karen Rudbech and Rachel Smith (pictured with roses) were customers at Knudtsen Chevrolet when an employee suffered a heart attack. They performed CPR and utilized an Automatic External Defibrillator until rescue crews arrived. Knudtsen Chevrolet owners, Eve and Eric Knudtsen were recognized for their investment in the AED. Chief Ron Sampert praised all involved and encouraged the public and the business community to follow the lead and to also become trained in CPR. Post Falls Mayor Clay Larkin presented all four with a Mayors Medal.
